What is a “Cougar”?
Last weekend I was discussing with my friend the topic of “Cougar women”, who are they, what is cougar? Because it seems a popular subject nowadays, I hear this term more and more these days. So I started my investigation of its definition and use.
Definition from Urban dictionary:
An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn meister, to a real hottie or milf. Cougars are gaining in popularity - particularly the true hotties - as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together.
A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey".
Hot and sexy older woman, usually in her 40s or 50s, single or married, who is sick of her same-age counterparts which are usually hairless, have big guts, who only talk about their insurance premiums and have the TV remote control attached to their hands. Cougars are attractive, in their sexual prime, who know what they want and aren't afraid to go after it. BIG misconception is that they dress cheap, wear hot pink nail polish, animal skin prints and are not-so-attractive old-looking hags with bleached hair (Yeah those women exist, but they are NOT cougars). True cougars are classy, beautiful creatures who have made their successes on their own, have real brains, usually with expensive cars/homes, and are real head turners. Cougars seek younger men, and don't have to sneak up and attack...they know their younger mates are eager to get an experienced woman who won't ask if they'll call them the next day. Being a cougar is a positive thing.
While searching for the term “Cougar”, I found another term related to the subject it's “Puma”.
Definition from Urban dictionary:
A woman in her sexual prime between the ages of 30-39 who prefers to date younger men. The term "puma" does not apply to women before their 30s, and should never be confused with the titles "Cougar" (ages 40-49) and "Jaguar" (ages 50+).
Could You Have a "Cougar" Relationship?
As you can see, mature woman who is involved in amorous relationship with a younger man called “cougar”.
Some cougar women are less interested in a relationship than of the fact that they are appealing to younger men who are twice younger than they are.
I do understand the nature of cougar women, women become more confident over 40, know what they want in life, know how to behave to seduce a man, become sexually active and willing to experiment, but having love affaire with a man who is young enough to be their son, that's too much.
Some people consider cougar women over 40 as desperate women, some think they are out of common sense, others consider “cougars as Vamp women”.
I wonder do men find “cougars” sexy, attractive? Would they prefer to date a cougar or an ordinary woman?

How to spot a Cougar
Defining the Woman’s age
In this case age is a huge indicator, most often cougars are women in their 40s and older, some consider cougars from the age of 35+. It's not quite easy sometimes to define a woman's age, pay attention to physical changes that women can't hide hands, neck, fine lines around the eyes or mouth could be signal that your lady is under 35 years old.
Evaluate her fashion
Cougar women usually wear expensive designer clothes or wearing cloths not fitting their ages, tiny short dresses.
Cougars prefer intense make up, to cover age marks wrinkles, using heavy foundation, powder, lip gloss, chick rouge.
Determine her financial status
Dressed with chick and style, drinking expensive alcohol or cocktails, wearing jewelry, owning an expensive vehicle, fit and tanned.
Remember, cougar women over 40 are less likely to be interested in a long term relationship or having a family, they are interested in amorous relationship with younger guys, often in one night stands.
Not all women want to date a younger men, there are men and women who are looking for serious relationship, a soul mate, a life partner.
